HARRINGTON, Del. (AP) — A Harrington police officer is facing child pornography charges after an investigation by Delaware State Police and the state child predator task force.

Authorities arrested 37-year-old Jonathan Kendall on Thursday on several counts of dealing in child pornography.

The arrest came after investigators executed a search warrant at his home in Lincoln on Jan. 19.

Information obtained in that search led to two additional searches of Kendall’s home and car on Thursday, during which additional evidence was recovered.

Kendall is charged with 27 counts of dealing in child pornography, one count of hindering prosecution, and official misconduct. He was arraigned and being held under $272,000 secured bond.
